I've watched so little basaeball this year with both the Sox and my wife's Nats being terrible. It's like I have no idea who anyone is.

This happens even for the biggest fans of TB, to be fair. The two guys currently cosplaying Ruth and Gehrig in the middle of their lineup are a rookie OF they stole from the Cards last year (Randy Arozarena) and journeyman 1B Ji-Man Choi, who somehow owns Gerrit Cole and can't hit anyone else.

These are Jon's Keys to the Game (TM). :)

I got those to figured out.

The guy who's name rhymes with Macarana and the fat Korean dude my wife thought was a former government employee until she found out he's Korean.

Cole has settled in, now just avoid the errant fb homer pitch
All the other pitches are nasty, I get why you want to throw 100 all the time if you can but mixing it up better makes him even more dangerous.

Haha, he has three total hits in seven postseason games now, HRs off Bieber, Snell and Anderson.

That HR was on the second pitch of the AB, the first strike he threw.

Just 14 pitches for Anderson, will be very surprised and thankful if that’s it for him.

No reason to assume anything until Cole gets Choi out. Or doesn't give up a HR.

Whew, OK.
